Create A One-Of-A-Kind Space With These Creative Decor Tips

Even if you live in a one-bedroom apartment, the idea of giving your home a complete facelift is daunting. So, when we caught wind of Decorist — an S.F.-based interior design site that uses algorithms and quizzes to pair users with designers and products — we knew we were in luck. Not only is it easy to use, but it's totally budget-friendly. Double whammy.
Decorist recently debuted a shiny new casa IRL to demonstrate how you can use the site's products in your own space. Let's just say, the house is jam-packed with inspiration. We took a tour of the chic pad (get that pin button ready), and scored some fail-proof tips on how you can make over your place. Weekend project, anyone?
